Current Project:

Tail Fairing!!!
If you wanna see what I'm trying to accomplish, look at Candymans tail fairing.

[Update - The initial repairs to the tail are done! A large crack near where the side fender meets the tail was held together with JB Weld (a good idea for some repairs it was still holding together after an unknown amount of time.) So after sanded off the JB Weld, I promply set the crack back to where it belonged and used some PVC Cement to fix it. There was also a broken tab where the fender mounts, and a smal crack near it, they were also repaired (not done for astetics, it wont be seen!). So now the first primer coat is on to look for imperfections before the modification starts.]

Tail fairing mod has been posponed until I have time.




Upcoming Mods/Accessories:



Thinking about the stealth saddle bags but I can't make up my mind yet!

Double Bubble - gotta save up some money before I buy one but I definately want it in Dark smoke!

Future mods may include a slightly taller front and back tire (lower rpms and more accurate speedometer) - Thinking 100/90 - 16 and 120/90 - 16 BT45's



Fluid types:

Oil - Accel 10w40 SF ;600miles to current
Chain lube - Mobil 80w90
Cable lube - 3-in-1 Oil



Fuel Economy - Indicated Odometer

04/21/07 - 58 mpg - 87 octane
05/09/07 - 73 mpg - 87 octane
06/17/07 - 68 mpg - 87 octane





Notes:

Valve adjustment - I drilled out the spot weld for the coil bracket on both sides of the bike and removed. I did not move the radiator (in hind sight it would have made it easier if I removed the tube that goes behind the valve cover which would have required me to drain the radiator) I didn't have a container to store the fluid in.
Total time 5 hrs, mostly because I was taking my time and didn't want to misunderstand the instructions.


Fender Eliminator - Take your time!!! Also if you plan on buying a spare to cut into, The signal mount holes are different on the newer models ('05-'07 I think) from the older ones. The newer fenders have thinner plastic to fit the new signals.
